The only thing worse than seeing evil, is seeing evil where it isn't--or assuming the sound you hear is zebras, not horses.
Rand wants help in Congress. Simple. He doesn't want to be a lone vote, he wants help.
His position as having endorsed Romney gave him much more clout when he criticized Romney than if he had opposed him; and, it sent a warning shot to others who make deals with Rand that he won't tolerate certain bad positions or actions. Good move.
Now he's giving away money -- with strings attached. Helpers will be lining up. He's a power broker.
Ron Paul never expected to "win" (although he has won); Rand is playing to win in a different way. I may prefer the former's personality (typical of natural libertarians), but Rand's approach and personality will get way more traction and appeal to more people. We need more like him.
